Case Study Throwdown

Another long weekend is drawing to  a close.  As Luis said (insert heavy Portuguese accent), "Much one day finish.  Much one weekend finish.  Everybody much old."  LOL! Some of the things he comes out with slay me and I love him to bits for it.  I am grateful that after 7 years together we still make each other laugh every day.  

I only spent a few hours in the Craft Cave this weekend but managed to come up with a couple of cards. This one uses the colours from The Colour Throwdown and is loosely inspired by Maile's card at CASE Study.  How gorgeous is that multi layered dimensional flower?  A real jaw dropper.  I was inspired by the placement of the flower in the corner of the card, the popped up flower and the gems on the leaves.  I added some black Stickles to the centre of the flower too for some extra sparkle.

Back to reality tomorrow.  Hope you've all had a lovely weekend - and for you US gals I hope your holiday tomorrow is a good one too!  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Stamps:  (Flower & sentiment from Very Vintage Greetings) WPlus9, (Leaves from Turning A New Leaf) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist) Stampin' Up
Gems:  (Mini Pearls Bumblebee assortment) Doodlebug, (Black) Teresa Collins
Glitter:  (Black Diamond) Stickles

*insert heavy Portuguese accent* lol! I could totally hear that in my head ;) Being able to laugh (at each other and occasionally at the same things, lol) seriously keeps us going :)
What a gorgeous flower! Love how the Stickles give it such a pop :)
